Winter Beauty Kit: Soothing Scents of the Forest from Marble & Milkweed

January 4, 2017

My New Year’s wish for everyone? Let’s add something calming to our daily routine.

A deep breath would be a good start. Beyond that, I’m eager to try out a potion or two from a modern apothecary. Marble & Milkweed‘s Briar Winters has put together a collection of soothing forest-scented organic products in a Winter Getaway Kit:

Above: Packed in a drawstring linen bag, a Winter Getaway Kit includes body oil, facial tonic and a moisturizer, a cotton wash cloth, herbal tea, a cedar smudge stick, and a smoky quartz crystal. It is $48.

Above: Also available separately, a 2-ounce bottle of Winter Nourishing Body Oil is $32. Ingredients include jojoba oil, essential oils of frankincense, Himalayan cedar, myrrh, silver fir, Douglas fir, and non-GMO Vitamin E (not recommended for pregnant or nursing women).

Above: Nourishing Facial Balm, also sold separately in two sizes for prices ranging from $16 to $32, “is very gentle and is full of soothing botanicals, but as with any product that’s new to you, try a small patch test first to ensure its compatibility with your skin,” says Winters.

Processed with VSCOcam with s2 preset

Above: A Forest Tea blend “evokes the spirit of the forest with organic heirloom Pu-erh, organic Lapsang Souchong, wild-harvested Douglas fir tips, and the delicate woodland character of blackberry and violet leaves,” says Winters. Also sold separately, a 2-ounce box will make from 12 to 14 cups of tea and is $18.
